McLane School Trail

 This short trail winds its way through forest and meadowland just south of Evergreen State College. When the trail hits Mud Road it turns to the left and shares a highway bridge on 101. At the bottom of the ramp it turns to the left again and meanders a little further before ending at the back of McLane Elementary School. Eventually it may stretch much further as part of the Capital to Capitol Trail.
